HIS Excalibur Radeon 9600 with Dual DVI Outputs - Conclusion

Julian checks in today with a look at the HIS Excalibur Radeon 9600 - with a difference. It features Dual DVI native outputs along with a total of 256MB of onboard memory. If dual displays excite you, this is worth a look.

Conclusion

 

One unique graphics card and some unique performances have been demonstrated today. Incredible multiple LCD monitor support has been shown. While price remains uncertain due to the lack of public information release, we don't expect a price higher than $180 USD at the moment.

 

For those in office-type conditions that are cramped for space, and therefore are using LCD monitors and want dual-desktop environments (added space and easier organization) will be able to use the features of the HIS card to the fullest. If you are in need of dual-monitor desktop environments and do not want to pay premium prices or do not want to suffer laggy and sluggish operating environments, then HIS's 9600 Dual-DVI is currently your best choice.

 

While the HIS Radeon 9600 is not a ground-breaking revolutionary product, it does offer a unique feature overlooked by many who run multiple-monitor LCD environments. The target customer base may be small, but kudos goes out to HIS for taking the right step in alternative and innovative graphic card solutions.
